[The Taliban office in Qatar was an Obama directive, honored by “Fat Pig of Qatar“(SEE: Karzai Announced New Taliban Peace Talks At Noon—By 3:00 pm American Diplomats Had Undermined Them—Jun 19, 2013 ). The Doha initiative effectively split the Afghan Taliban and ignited a Taliban civil war, by blocking Karzai’s covert negotiations with the Taliban (w/Pakistan’s help), by arresting those Afghan Taliban leaders attempting to negotiate with Afghanistan, outside of US control (SEE: Arresting Taliban To Cover America’s Ass ; Understanding the New Afghan Paradigm ; US Special Forces Forcibly Halt Karzai’s Peace Negotiations Once Again—Oct 12, 2013).
IT IS UNDENIABLE that Qatar created the Taliban office as a favor to the US Administration. By enabling this American sabotage of real Afghan peace talks, Qatar served as the hands of the CIA, just as Bandar bin Sultan had sabotaged Syria’s anti-terror war under CIA direction.]
Amid mixed messages from Washington on the Saudi-led campaign to diplomatically isolate Qatar over allegations of terror sponsorship, the Qatari government has claimed its hosting of the Taliban’s “political office” came in response to a U.S. request.
Qatari special envoy on counterterrorism Mutlaq Al Qahtani told Al Jazeera that Qatar permitted the Taliban to set up shop in 2013 “by request of the U.S. government” to “facilitat[e] the talks between the Americans, the Taliban, and the government of Afghanistan.” The decision, he said, was part of Qatar’s “open-door policy, to facilitate talks, to mediate, and to bring peace.”
Al Jazeera is owned by the Qatari government and partially funded by the Qatari royal family. Qatar is also host to the largest U.S. military base in the Middle East, a facility that houses 11,000 American personnel and provides a base for airstrikes in Iraq and Syria. Bonnie Kristian
